Palestinians Injured as Israeli Forces Suppress Protest near Ramallah

At least two Palestinians were shot and injured with rubber-coated steel bullets and dozens of others suffocated by tear gas as Israeli forces violently quelled a peaceful demonstration in the town of Turmus Ayya, north of Ramallah city, said WAFA correspondent.

The Israeli army attacked a peaceful demonstration organized by Palestinian residents to protest the Israeli establishment of a new settlement outpost on Turmus Ayya land.

Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters toward Palestinians who gathered near the town’s municipality to protest the building of a new settlement outpost on the town’s land, leading to violent clashes.

Jewish settlers reportedly attacked Palestinians who attempted to reach their land threatened with seizure for the benefit of the new settlement outpost.
